    The trust on CAT can never never go down. And it is very well reflected by the following statement.
    "The number of non-IIM institutes accepting CAT scores has also increased this year. "While there were around148 non-IIM institutes accepting CAT scores until last year, the number this year has gone to more than 155 this years" said Moorthy."

    Well it is not going to make any difference at all to CAT and its reputation. Where on one side , these institutes left the league, great colleges like IITs(top notch in india) and FMS have joined hands. Also the league still has big players like MDI, SPJain etc. Also this year, the number of registrations has gone up which is a true reflection of the increasing faith of students in CAT. Also, there are talks that in future CAT will be held in foreign locations as well.

    whereas all the others are thinking about CAT will not get effected I am thinking what would be the next step of the institutes scrapping CAT.

    As said by SmritiMatra that the core institutes are still accepting CAT, I think this will prove to be of worth may be with different perspective. A student applying to CAT will have a clear focus on the creme institutes. In other words, CAT may get even more competitive for those who aim for the best institutes, with IITs accepting IIMs score this confirms that not much will affect the IIMs.

    Well, every year several institutes subscribe to CAT or fall out of it. It should not be a cause of worry for students. Management institutions that are there in 'who's who' list of B-schools are still using CAT scores. So, if you are taking CAT 2011, you don't need to worry. There are enough takers out there for you. Give it your best.

    Even I would agree with Smriti Ji! It should not make much difference as CAT is one of the most elite management entrance exams in India; minor hiccups would not be a problem as students would still prefer CAT over other other management entrance exams.

    Since core (read big) business schools are still accepting CAT scores, it shouldn't make much of a difference. In my opinion, those who do not accept CAT scores will have to risk losing their reputation in the market. CAT is going to prove a tough competition to them and most of the education experts agree that it is quite a good judge of students' capabilities.
